Rogue compost helps grow food for people in need

Helping others in need throughout our community is a hallmark of Rogue Disposal & Recycling. One of the ways we do that is by providing Rogue Compost and garden space to the ACCESS Food Share Gardens. According to Garden Coordinator Kim Barnes, “The gardens make a real difference to the lives of many in our community, both as places of gathering and as sources of sustenance.”

Barnes continued, saying that in 2017, “your donations of Rogue Compost made it possible to grow 25,727 pounds of organic produce for distribution to the ACCESS network of 50 partner agencies, improving the diets of over 5,000 low-income individuals. The raised beds at the Recycling Center alone contributed 434 pounds of carrots, 323 pounds of beets and 220 pounds of onions, for a total of 997 pounds of vegetables. Thank you for your contribution to this very special program we could not do it without you!”
